As one continues walking southwest along the beach, it turns from fine white sand into a darker grey where gravel becomes more and more prevalent and eventually becomes interspersed with rocks, some fallen from the cliffs above. Cnoc na Smuain (Meditation Hill) is above the cliff above the gravel beach to the left and is not visible in this photo. The park’s boundary is close to where the Johnny Angus Brook enters the Northumberland Strait; in this photo, that is near the line of small rocks that goes out into the water in the middle of the photo. Above that point is the slope known as the Hogs Back. Beyond that point lies the Colindale shore, where the Colindale Road can be seen—the guard rails are just left of where the road turns to the southwest around the hillside.
This area of the beach has quite a different feel to it from the sand beach that occurs nearer the Mabou River. It is a very nice spot to walk and usually much less populated, even in the summer time, than the sandy beach.
